The animated Duck Dodgers television series ran for three seasons beginning in 2003 and was inspired by the 1953 Merrie Melodies cartoon "Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2th Century"--essentially a spoof of science fiction book series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century and Flash Gordon. The series stars Daffy Duck as Duck Dodgers, a hapless duck frozen for three centuries, thawed in the 24 1/2th century, and then assigned by Chief Scientist Dr. Ignatius Q "I.Q." Hi to defend Earth from the Martians, who are ruled by the Martian Queen and protected by Martian commander X-2 (played by Marvin Martian). Duck Dodgers is an egotistical featherbrain who's easily distractible, so it often falls to his sidekick Cadet, played by Porky Pig, to hold things together and guide the team toward successfully completing its missions.
